Truth Emergent

Truth Emergent (2004) is based on New York Times news photographs of activities during the early days of the US involvement in Iraq. The thumbnails show the source image directly beneath each response work. As indicated by a red box on each source image, a small area was initially captured and subsequently upsampled to 30 by 40 inches in the derivative works. Coloration in the final pieces is based on a series of self-imposed rules coupled with randomly selected color palettes.

The pieces are intended to address the degeneration of “truth” that occurs when images and information are collected and disseminated. The work also addresses forces that are beyond our direct control but that nevertheless greatly impact our lives.
